Across North America, black bears have been found with gallbladders removed, paws chopped off, and bodies left to rot, all to satisfy a demand in Asian communities for use in Traditional Chinese medicine, both here and abroad.

My younger brother is in town to see my mother. This afternoon, he and his wife and I went for a walk in the rustic park along the ocean in the 30+ C heat. Along the path, we came to some bear scat. What a wonderful reminder that even in the cities, there are places that the bears can come out when need be, and be safe.

Noted and signed. This is being done for sheer greed. You don't see traditional Chinese medicine animal organ hunters out in the North American wild. The offenders are vastly our own brothers and sisters providing this service for sheer greed. As I previously said if we devalue the market value of the organs of these magnificent creatures, these grim numbers will decline.

I knew that man's greed was prevalent here but I honestly had no idea that this barbaric and reprehensible act was going on here. It was bad enough knowing that they tortured the bears with the dogs, that just grieved my spirit, but adding this to what they are already doing is just awful and grieves me even more. One day they will wonder WHY things are going so badly for them and they won't even know or understand that the seeds you sow are the harvests you will reap.

I signed the petition, but don't like the demand to give my personal address and e-mail for the signature to be recorded. It makes me very uncomfortable. I wish the Chinese would leave their ancient barbaric and cruel practices of paying money for the killing of North American bears for body parts and their so called "MAGICAL PROPERTIES." What if other people paid to have their pandas slaughtered for a few body parts? They would be in an uproar. How can such an intelligent people be so extremely DUMB? On the other hand, maybe they aren't so bright, after all.
